This Gretsch 6119-1962HT Tennessean instrument was
donated by the Gretsch foundation from their extensive
collection of Gretsch guitars & drums. it has been part
of the collection for some 12 years now and during that
time it was exhibited at the Georgia Music Hall of Fame
in Macon, Georgia, as well, as at Hartsfield Jackson
Atlanta Airport in a Georgia music hall of fame exhibit
there. It has been photographed extensively and admired
by musicians and the public alike.
Features include: Dual hilo-tron pickups, zero fret,
polished aluminum Bigsby vibrato for great accents, 16" maple hollow body,
locking strap knobs,
rosewood fingerboard, and chrome
Mellow pickups...great for many styles. Especially jazz,
blues, country, etc.
Simulated f-holes to cut back on feedback 3 way tone
switch provides interesting sound options.
Thinner body than most Gretsch models makes it more
comfortable to most players.
Bar bridge adds extra tonal qualities.
It is considered 'new old stock' as
it has never been a player owned instrument.
The design was pioneered by Gretsch along with Chet
Atkins in the late 1950's. This particular guitar was
built in the Chet Atkins tradition before the resumption
of extensive Chet Atkins guitar production in 2007 and
as such, does not bear his signature on the pick guard.
A 2007 Chet Atkins Gretsch Catalog and a 2010 Country
Music Hall of Fame Exhibition Catalog and a hard shell
carrying case are included.
